Every once in awhile, we turn to successful members of the Grapevine community to give us their advice about being a YouTube creator. Since July 2010, Marnie Goldberg, more commonly known as MsGoldGirl, has been talking about cosmetics, hair products, skin care, cooking and more on YouTube. Her channel now boasts over 65K subscribers and over 880 videos and she’s worked with countless brands including It Cosmetics, Skindinavia and more.
We asked Marnie to tell us a little bit more about her, and share her tips for success on YouTube. See below for what MsGoldGirl had to say!
10 questions with MsGoldGirl:
How would you describe yourself in 3 words only?
Intelligent, Caring, Curious
I’d be a wolf – they work better in packs but they’re strong on their own as well.
What do most people NOT know about you?
I love being around people, but to unwind I prefer to be by myself with a book.
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
Why did you decide to start your channel?
I started my channel because at the time (and even now) there weren’t a lot of YouTubers doing beauty videos over the age of 35. I wanted to fill a void.
I got it right from the start, except for the tech side of things. That’s still an ongoing learning experience!
What’s your advice for people who are just getting started on YouTube?
For those that are starting out, I’d say do it for the right reasons. If you’re doing it to be famous or make a lot of money, the viewers will see right through you and it will never work out for you. Just be yourself. Also, always have a clean background-make the bed, tidy the room, don’t have too many distractions in the background.
Who are some of your favorite YouTube creators?
How has YouTube changed your life?
I’ve made real friends through YouTube, both viewers and fellow YouTubers. I’ve also been able to make a real income, which has helped my family tremendously.
